      I have prepared the brisket of beef the same way you do for about 35 years. I got the recipe in Texas, we love it because it is so easy to prepare and so tasty. I also have put some dried herbs in it. The first time a prepared it I put sliced fresh sweet onions on top, but the dry onion soup mix is excellent I always baked it 300 but I tried your recipe and baked 250 for 5 hours it is very tender more so than the recipe I have used. Thanks Scotts Sassy Girl

      I've made it this way at home. Commercially, for the larger ones, I cover it on the fat side with 1 cup of mixed with 1/4 cup black pepper. Then roast in a hot oven to rare before slicing off most of the fat and the salt mix. I seldom get any at home because everyone digs in.
